Designate Infobox for Recording Studio Operations

$type studio dirname class|prefix [listfile]

This command identifies the infobox as one that, when selected, starts up the built-in Recording Studio software for recording system voice prompts, menus, and document descriptions. The recording studio normally operates on voice files in a working directory, but this command can specify the "live" voice file directories if you wish. The recording studio can display the prompts to be spoken, to assist the person making the recordings.

The parameters on this command are used as follows:

dirname the full pathname of the working directory. The CopiaFacts Recording Studio operations will only modify files in this named directory.
class one of the following keywords:
system causes the working file names to be formatted as SVPn.VOX (or SVPn.WAV if enabled with the $voice_format command), where n is the message number without leading zeros. Earlier releases of FaxFacts used the naming convention FAXMSG.n. Message numbers are limited to 1 to 999. The prompt texts are looked up in the listfile, if specified.
images|menus causes the system to search for an IIF (matching the message number entered by the operator) to obtain the script commands for prompting the operator. If no IIF is found then the script is looked up in the listfile, if specified.

digits|amounts|custom   causes the system use the .ALG voice algorithm file (specified as the listfile) to obtain the script commands for prompting the operator. If the file extension is not .ALG it is assumed to be a normal list as described below.

prefix if one of the above keywords is not given, this parameter is assumed to be a filename prefix for the voice files to be recorded, and the class is assumed to be images. For example a prefix of "FFVM" will create a voice file named FFVM7.VOX when item 7 is selected, instead of 0000007.VOX which would normally be created for class images.
listfile an optional file in the working directory dirname which contains the names of the files and the script to be spoken. The format for this file is described in the documentation for the Recording Studio feature.
